Legal Corruption

This is one way that legislators suck money for personnel use from the campaign finance system. They use their contributions to "pay" family members for work. I think a good example is that Tom Delay had his wife receiving tens of thousands of dollars for such work. See this from the Washington Post for more on this bad practice. If a company overly hired a relative it would look bad, but they can launder money through this system.
